I’ve recently read these first two novels of Peter May’s Lewis Trilogy, and was swept away by them – to the extent that I finished The Blackhouse and immediately felt I had to read The Lewis Man. I am holding off on the third book for now – The Chessmen – as it is still almost full price on the Kindle store, and I think I need to take a break from them.

The three books are mainly set on the Isle of Lewis. May has obviously done quite a bit of research on the island and its community, and this results in a background that feels very real; although it should be stressed that the plot is wholly fictitious.
